Historically, Great Britain was the 'workshop of the world', as an exporter of labour. As liberal capitalism grew from the 1850s, the great British regulatory frameworks also began in the workplace. Consequently, since the 1960s employers, employees and their representatives alike have sought to understand, clarify and utilize the principles which make up labour law in the British workplace. This monograph, part of the renowned International Encyclopaedia on Industrial Relations & Labour Law series, provides an analysis of the facets of laws governing the workplace in Great Britain. Whilst examining both UK Governmental employment initiatives and the EU's pervasive social policies, a pathway guiding the reader towards the underlying notions, concepts and principles will be given. More significantly, an explanation of the phases of labour law from the laissez-faire to the regulatory, to the decentralized and towards more recently, Blair's vision of 'third way' solutions, including new dispute resolution regimes, shall be provided. However, more importantly during this journey, the reader will be exposed to the contemporary key issues in British labour: who is an employee?; what contractual rights/obligations exist?; what forms of discrimination prevail?; how are employees safeguard from dismissal?; what collective rights are permitted?; and, what forms of legal redress apply? To that end, this edition covers the reforms brought about by the Dispute Resolution Regulations 2004 (brought in compliance with the Employment Act 2002), the Disability Discrimination (Amendment) Act 2006, the Children & Families Act 2006, the revised Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006, and the Employment Equality (Age Discrimination) Regulations 2006. Above all, what will be demonstrated is that in terms of labour law, Great Britain stands apart in its approach, principles and common law system handling strife in the workplace.

Freedom and Happiness in Economic Thought and Philosophy

Starting from a distinction made by the American philosopher, John Rawls, in 2000 between two kinds of liberalism, "liberalism of freedom" and "liberalism of happiness", this book presents a range of articles by economists and philosophers debating the most fundamental aspects of the subject. These include the exact significance of Rawls’ distinction and how it can be related to European political philosophy on the one hand and to utilitarianism on the other hand; the various definitions of happiness and freedom and their implications and the informational basis of individual preferences. The objectives of the book are twofold: first, it is devoted to a thorough analysis of the founding texts of both liberalisms. It aims to determine the logic of selection of the concepts which these traditions consider as relevant. The Kantian pair "Reasonable"/"Rational" can be seen as the basis on which these concepts are defined, our final concern being to reveal the profound relations of complementarity between them: we call it reconciliation. Secondly, we consider a fundamental issue of welfare economics – how to appraise individual preferences – in light of the Rawlsian distinction. It is emphasized that neither a criterion based on liberalism of freedom by itself, nor an evaluation in terms of liberalism of happiness by itself exhausts the question of utility. One must combine both aspects in order to cope with that issue. To do so, it is claimed that one can resort to the concept of metaranking of preferences. All the contributions included in this book are the outcomes of a collective research project of three years. The contributors come from a variety of backgrounds and yet are unified in developing a specific position about freedom and happiness. This book should be of interest to those focusing on the history of economic thought as well as moral, political and economic philosophy.
